Often the NEWS entry ends up being rewritten from the commit message to be
more user-focussed description of the change...

We should just switch to Mercurial :)

I've already hacked up a hg extension to automatically fill the commit
with the changes in a NEWS or CHANGELOG file.  This works quite well -- you
add the short but nice description to NEWS, do "hg commit", and the editor
pops up where you can either accept the message consisting of only the
in NEWS, or add some more stuff that's not interesting to users.


Thus spake the Lord: Thou shalt indent with four spaces. No more, no less.
Four shall be the number of spaces thou shalt indent, and the number of thy
indenting shall be four. Eight shalt thou not indent, nor either indent thou
two, excepting that thou then proceed to four. Tabs are right out.
